The modifications that we have suggested in the light of our experience operating the first sample model are now being made by the factory, and we will in due course receive a second sample to test.
The model was recently photographed for Model Rail magazine on Horseley Fields, which represents the outskirts of Wolverhampton and is operated by members of the Northants and Cambs Area Group of the N Gauge Society.
Once the second, updated sample has been thoroughly tested and approved we can move to production.
Only then will we set the cut off date for the model. At the moment it is anticipated that this will probably be sometime after Easter, but once decided we will advertise the cut off date here.
Anyone who has registered with us (without obligation) for our free newsletters and updates will receive reminders by email so as not to miss out.
While the complete train was out on Horseley Fields we were also able to measure it. For those interested these are the lengths:
5-car train: 830mm
9-car train: 1475mm
11-car train: 1810mm
